Figs with Pate


I don’t know why I never though of this before – figs and pate! Ok Foie would be amazing, but thanks to the governator it’s illegal to sell Foie in California. Trader Joe’s has a great pate with truffles this time of year – so I stuffed some figs, topped with a little truffle oil and voila – fancy snack time!

Figs, halves
Pate or Foie – about 2 oz
Truffle oil

Stuff figs with pate and drizzle with truffle oil.

Salmon Ceviche


This salmon ceviche is the perfect way to end the weekend and it comes together super quick. Don’t let the salmon marinade in the juice for more that 1 hour or it will get too tough.

1 8 oz piece of salmon, diced
1 tomato, diced
1 avocado, diced
1/4 c cilantro, minced
1 jalapeño, minced
1/4 c lime juice
1/4 c lemon juice
Salt and pepper

Combine and refrigerate for 45 – 60 minutes. Serve.

Serves 2 – 4.
